The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha, said that Nigeria is expecting 52 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines by the second quarter of 2022.
Boss Mustapha who is also the Chairman Presidential Steering Committee (PSC) made this state at the national briefing in Abuja.
It also said over 1.6 million eligible persons have been fully vaccinated against the pandemic six months after Nigeria commenced the vaccination exercise.
Boss Mustapha said the most potent way of surviving the virus is through vaccines, which science and research have presented and urged all eligible persons to make themselves available to be vaccinated.
“There are various choices now. We have AstraZeneca, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson and we expect Pfizer to be delivered very soon. There will be enough vaccines to go round soon. By the second quarter of 2022, we will have received about 52 million doses of the vaccines,” Mustapha said.
He said efforts were on-going to implement the policy on Vaccine Mandate for all Federal Public Servants to ensure safety in the workplace and at home.
